“Excellent Service and Wine”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Just came back from Carvoeiro and we visited this restaurant twice as we loved the Tapas style menu and the two guys who run the restaurant are excellent hosts and know their wines.

Expect to pay €60 to €80 for three people to have several courses with wine but it is a great night with great service, highly recommended.

“Different but good”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We'd been recommend Terroir by good friends and were not disappointed. One normally associates tapas with Spain but the wide range of dishes available at Terroir showed that the concept works in Portugal just as well.

The wine situation is also different in that a large range of wines is on display either for purchase at the indicated price or for consumption at the restaurant for an addition €10 per bottle. While this appears high for a BYO it actually represents good value as the result is a wine costing a lot less than the 2 or 3 times retail mark-up charged by most restaurants. We chose an excellent Alentejo red from a small producer representing excellent value for money.

Highly recommended.

“Value added to Carvoeiro”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Take the best of two sides and merge. You will have a good result. A wine expert and a mediterranian citchen with a good Portuguese orientation - what a great concept. You will find a good choice of wines that Portugal has to offer and you will find them at fair market price. You can buy the wine at competitive prices. If you want to drink the wine in the restaurant - by the glass or as a bottle - there is a reasonable surcharge and you wil get more value for money than in many other restaurants.
If the kitchen says tappas they offer specialities like lulinias (a must), anchovis or many other things that go well with the wine but they also have one or two warm dishes. They do good stews comming with excellent rice or potatoes and vegetables. Regular changing, allways good ideas and a perfect recommendation of wines, all that in a nice atmosphere with a friendly and good service. We made it our favorite, comming back regularly because there is allways something new.

“If you like quality and something a little different, you won't be disappointed !”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

The relaxed atmosphere, attention to detail, quality service and knowledge of the team, make this a must visit place if you like something a little different.
Don't be shy, tell them what you usually like to drink and they'll find a Portuguese wine that will be similar (but probably better) and they will help to match it up perfectly with whatever you choose off the tapas type menu.
This was the highlight of the holiday without question !

“Good concept”
Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed very good portugese 'tapas'. Pork cheeks were tender and tasty. This wine shop and kitchen is similar to Vinoteca in London and is an excellent way to showcase local food and wine producers. It will be a hit with those looking for a non touristy experience.
